Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Voyager, Rheingasse 7, 53113 Bonn, Germany

Former Rheingasse 24 - This destination is best described in the words of the Japanese artist “Yukako Ando” in 2012; he develpoed the scultpture “Precision and Potential for Chang- A desk for Ludwig at Rheingasse 934” to mark the site where Beethoven once resided.

“On top of the desk that fans out vertically like an accordion is an open window, which implies the option of change. The window highlights the view across the Rhine towards the siebengebirge that was young Ludwig’s favourite perspective from the attic of his parental home. A small bird perched on the window frame symbolises the state of intellectual freedom. In contrast, the elongated table legs represent the possibility of failing and make reference to the young composer’s different personal situation. The small child- size chair in front of the desk further emphasises this contrast.”

Ludwig Van Beethoven lived here from 1776 to 1785.
